I smiled. I haven't read it yet, I don't remember what it says (I don't read it at every glance, merely smile at its existence). It's a letter to myself.
Hey Future Kiwi,
I wonder if you even go by that name any more. It was our legacy. I'm sure you remember. How could you forget?
I know I'm being silly but my thoughts are going crazy. I wonder how old you are and if you still love women and rainbows and memorizing pointless long quotes. I wonder what we have in common and if I could make you laugh. I wonder where you live and what the world is like.
I can picture you reading this. It's different on this end. It makes me feel as if time isn't linear.
It is for reasons like this that I love myself and my crazy habits. Be right back, I'm going to respond.
Funny that I was waiting to feel 'old enough' to respond to this, or I remember that being my thought process when I was a senior in high school feeling trapped by administration and ready to fly fly fly away. Today I replied without thought to 'feeling old enough'. I think, in a way, that means I am.
Hey Past & Future Kiwi,
Still Kiwi! 'Course I remember - a new decade of Kiwi on the way!
My thoughts are going crazy too - the 'Real World' soon! How frightening! I am 20; I love women (though it hasn't amounted to much!); I adore rainbows (and ukuleles!); long quotes are fantastic! We have so much in common; you were a beautiful foundation; you make me laugh and smile daily. I live in England (you called it!); Iceland just rained down ash so I was stranded in Spain - fun memories of ferries!
Time doesn't feel any more linear; I'm still 6 inside. Future Kiwi, how about you?

Now I can only sit and wonder what will go on the back side of the jean leg! Who would have thought, back when I was a senior and cutting the legs off my jeans to make capris and then deciding to colour on the cut legs, that I would get such a kick out of it now. Actually, I have a hunch exactly who knew - I did!
Now back to productivity!
